Secret Agent Man
Em                Am             Em
There's a man who leads a life of danger
Em                              B
To everyone he meets he stays a stranger
Em                        Am                    
With every move he makes another chance he takes
Em                Am          Em
Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow.


Chorus:
Bm     Em         Bm     Em
Secret agent man, secret agent man
C                              B               Em
They've given you a number and taken away your name. 

Beware of pretty faces that you find
A pretty face can hide an evil mind
Ah, be careful what you say
Or you'll give yourself away
Odds are you won't live to see tomorrow. 

Chorus

Swingin' on the Riviera one day
And layin' in the Bombay alley next day
Oh no, you let the wrong word slip
While kissing persuasive lips
The odds are you won't live to see tomorrow. 

Chorus

If you are unfamiliar with Johnny Rivers:

He’s still cool, by the way:

chorus: 

G                              D7
Waterloo  Waterloo  where will you meet your Waterloo

Every puppy has his day everybody has to pay
     G           D7       G
Everybody has to meet his Waterloo

Verse:
G            C                    G
Now ole Adam was the first in history
                     A7            D7
With an apple he was tempted and deceived
         G               C
Just for spite the devil made him take a bite
           G              D7      G
And that's where ole Adam met his Waterloo
 
repeat chorus

                  
Little General  Napoleon of France                 
Tried to conquer  the world but lost his pants
Met defeat known as Bonaparte's retreat                      
And that's where Napoleon met his Waterloo
 
repeat chorus
 
                   
Now a feller who's darling proved untrue         
Took her life but he lost his too
Now he swings where the little birdie sings
And that's where Tom Dooley met his Waterloo

Repeat chorus

Banjos and Donuts and Friends, Oh my!

Last night’s sessions at The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society were a joy. You missed some cool workshops, Jack Scrimshaw not only singing (the dude has a voice) an Irish song, but Bad Bad Leroy Brown was sung in Spanish by my brother Carlos and Higor from Brazil sang Red River Valley in Portuguese! So many songs were sung, questions asked and ideas thrown around that it would be hard to recall everything in detail – and that is just how it should be.

If you missed it, come next week.

If you are too shy to attend, give Dear Old Dad a call. Really. He’ll coax you in.

You see, TWNBADMS is not a forum, jam or anything like that. We are simply folk musicians sharing our love of the craft. All are welcome. Everyone is a teacher and a student. Come out and play!

Eastbound and Wednesday!

Join us for the next gathering of The Wednesday Night Banjo and Dount Marching Society!

This week’s jam-starter song is Eastbound and Down, but bring your songs to share and questions to ask!

About The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society

The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society is a combination jam session, workshop, bull session, and general celebration of music.

The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society began in Wayne, Pa at Kitt Foster’s house. Patrick met Paul the Beatnik at the Radnor Library and convinced him to give his father a frailing banjo lesson in exchange for lunch at the family’s hoagie shop. The initial meeting led to a weekly session. That led to a rag-tag group slowly forming and becoming an extended family over the years.

Paul was a Washington Square beatnik with ties to musicians like Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, and Rambin’ Jack Elliott. Paul wanted us all to learn not only to play but also to teach and lead a jam.

We will be continuing that tradition as we revive The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society. We want an open exchange of ideas that ignores the nonsense surrounding genres and instruments.

You must be a musician to join The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society. Meetings are not open to an audience. We do not record meetings. These rules are in place to ensure that musicians of every level can share music, tips, and stories in a safe, non-judgmental, non-confrontational, and non-commercial space.

Any musician can join and take part in meetings of The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society. Music is a universal language. There are only twelve notes.

We go round-robin in each meeting. Every musician can call a song, ask a question, or offer a pointer.
